And they are excited to participate as well. They even conducted special tastings to select the 6 oolong for this round.
MountainTea.com is a multi-generation grower and manufacturer of Taiwan oolong. This is an opportunity to sample direct from the grower!!! BTW, since they are a grower and seller, they wholesale and retail, thus their prices are extremely reasonable.
Below are Priscilla, Chicco, Christine, and Mao Sheng.
Chicco is mostly in the USA. Christine is his mother.
Chicco wrote:Mao Sheng is one of our tea masters and his father is one of Taiwan's top tea roasters. For the past 4 years, Mao Sheng has personally hand-grown, hand-processed, and hand-sorted the 1st place winning oolong tea in the prestigious Nantou County Oolong Championship.
Each participant will receive all 6 (six) selections, 10 grams each, 60 grams total. You know me, I was saying, "just do 6 greener oolong." You know me, right?
But good news, this is a really nice range of Taiwan oolong consisting of 2 greener, 2 medium, and 2 dark!!!
Here are the selections:
2 GREEN Oolong:

Jade Oolong http://www.mountaintea.com/collections/green-oolong/products/jade-oolong
2 MEDIUM Oolong:
Medium Roast Dong Ding http://www.mountaintea.com/collections/medium-oolong/products/medium-roast-dong-ding-special-reserve
Medium Roast Taiwan Tie Guan Yin http://www.mountaintea.com/collections/medium-oolong/products/medium-roast-tieguanyin
2 DARK Oolong:
Imperial Pearl http://www.mountaintea.com/collections/dark-oolong/products/imperial-pearl
Bai Hao (Oriental Beauty) "Cake" http://www.mountaintea.com/collections/dark-oolong/products/formosa-bonita-cake
Without saying too much ... the one dark really blew me away ... it is worth the price of admission! I really enjoyed the first round of prelim tastings. It was eye opening. I am anxious to do another tasting with a higher ratio this time.
